As the years have gone by I've watched the book arrangement on shelves at local bookstores change. They've gone from being tightly packed and separated by hardcover and paperback, to a mix of some covers facing outward among a sea of spines, to this; a mix of paperback and hardcover with all the covers facing outward. Granted this is the "new release" section, but a lot of the bookstore is similarly spaced like this.

This makes the little kid in me that dreamed of owning a used bookstore cry.
